STEP 4 OF 4: Choose Lenses Material
A high index lens provides a number of benefits to the wearer:
- Are thinner and less noticeable in the profile of the glasses.
- High index lenses reduce eye distortion. (also known as the "coke bottle" effect)
- These lenses are more lightweight making the glasses more comfortable to wear.
I wanted to love this frame but it sits to low on my face, the top of the frame sit just in front of my eyes. The size is right not small but not oversized, the color is gorgeus, exactly what i wanted, sadly I'll be returning.
The eyeglasses were fabulous- unique vintage vibe, excellent quality reading-strength lenses, stylish sturdy frames. Love the entire Vintage & York collection. The precise measurements in the product description made for a perfect fit.
That being said, the actual delivery time between ordering the glasses (3-day express) and receiving the glasses was over 3 weeks, with no email confirmation of shipping. I live in a state adjacent to the company location. I had to leave a phone message with customer service as well as an email to find out the status of my order after two weeks went by. I did eventually receive an email reply after two weeks went by, but the response merely apologized and said that “orders can take awhile”.. I suggest that they clearly state in shipping info that orders can take over two weeks to process… A bit disappointed in customer service (but loved the eyeglasses).
I have 3 pair of the black myrtle frame with different lens in each pair. Obviously I love them! So many compliments I get because they our a unique cat eye .
The frames are very wide and very large. The top of the frame sits right on my eyes, so they are interfering with vision. They're such a cute shape and I love the mint/peach color but they're just too big.
Cute as can be but slide right down my nose if I move
